Regional Networks

Working together to prevent injuries and violence across the United States

Regional Networks work with public health offices and injury and violence prevention programs to build awareness of risk factors, prevention strategies, and best practices.

Five Core State Violence and Injury Prevention (CORE SVIPP) states lead the Regional Network Coordinating Organizations (RNCOs). These states provide coordination across states and with injury and violence prevention (IVP) organizations in specific regions of the country to share scientific evidence and violence and injury prevention program best practices. Each RNCO also coordinates a National Peer Learning Team (NPLT) to connect state partners across the country on a specific topic area related to injury and violence prevention.

National Peer Learning Teams have been launched to connect partners across the country to learn about a specific topic area related to injury and violence prevention and identify areas for high-leverage solutions. The topic areas include child maltreatment, intimate partner violence, motor vehicle crash injury prevention, traumatic brain injury, and systems thinking. National Peer Learning Teams are not limited to specific geographic regions.
